First seen back in October, Vans has officially unveiled its special Bones Brigade capsule collection for Fall/Winter 2012.
In celebration of the highly-anticipated new documentary from Vans’ first sponsored skateboarder, Stacy Peralta, Vans offers a limited Vans x Bones Brigade footwear and apparel collection available now at finer skate shops and Vans retail stores worldwide. Visit www.vans.com/bonesbrigade to buy official Bones Brigade Vans gear or find a dealer near you. Be sure to check out the first of a three-part series, The Bones Brigade Trivia Show, a quiz show testing younger skateboarders’ knowledge of the Bones Brigade. In the first episode we challenge Vans amateur, Curren Caples on his skate history. Can you beat Curren? Episodes two and three each feature a different surprise celebrity contestant and will be releasing weekly on Offthewall.tv.
By 1984, the Bones Brigade was the most competitively dominant skateboard team in history. On top of winning large, cheap plastic trophies, this legendary team pioneered modern technical skating and introduced skateboarding to the video age through a series of groundbreaking films. And they did it all in Vans classic Sk8-Hi high tops.
The Vans x Bones Brigade capsule includes an ’80s-inspired collection of apparel and footwear that complement the style of the original Bones Brigade crew. The set includes two classic Sk8-Hi shoes, each with an embroidered BB logo, a red coach jacket, a heather gray fleece crewneck sweater, four tees and two hats, a snapback cap and a painter cap. All pieces include the iconic Bones Brigade insignia along with checkerboard-patterned accents on the long sleeves.
